Taking aim at the former Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government for allegedly bringing the country's economy to its knees and distorting the moral values of the young generation, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Asif demanded accountability of those behind the "experiment."
"The country suffered losses during the [PTI's] four years," the former defense minister remarked on Sunday at the PML-N's workers' convention in Punjab's Sialkot. Those who carried out the experiment must be held responsible."
He accused the whole PTI leadership of corruption throughout their term. "I feel ashamed while narrating his [Imran] tale about Toshakhana." The infamous Toshakhana case, in which Imran Khan was accused of buying the presents he received as prime minister at bargain prices and then selling them on the open market for huge profits.
Asif also asserted that the country's economy would be restored within two years. The PML-N leader expressed his dismay over the alleged moral harm to the young during the PTI's government, saying it would take time to get the next generation on the correct course.
"Whatever was done to the youth for four years is in front of everyone," he said.
"The economy will recover and inflation will end, but how will moral values be restored?" inquired the senior politician.
